Do you have an issue with a Solco Motech PVMate Low Insolation message on your inverter screen? If so first off please understand that the Low Insolation message is completely normal if there isn’t much sunlight, such as at dawn and dusk.
What the Solco Motech PV Mate Low Insolation Error Means
The “Low Insolation” error message is your inverter telling you it’s not receiving enough power from the solar panels. Assuming you have plenty of light hitting your solar panels, this isn’t true. In this case the problem is either going to be with your solar panels or your inverter.
Solco Motech PVMate Low Insolation? Try a reboot
Whenever a solar inverter is playing up we recommend attempting to reboot the system to see if you can clear the issue as it can be a simple glitch. Rebooting your Solco Motech inverter is quite simple. Just follow the next steps:
Turn OFF the solar supply main switch (or inverter AC isolator if present).
Turn OFF the PV array DC isolator.
Wait for the inverter screen to go completely blank
Turn ON the PV array DC isolator.
Turn ON the solar supply main switch (or inverter AC isolator if present).
Wait a few minutes while the inverter boots back up.
Once you have completed a full reboot, wait a couple of minutes and see what happens. If the “Operation” light starts flashing and you see the “Low Insolation” message, then you’re going to need to call a local solar accredited electrician for further assistance. They will be able to do some fault finding on your system to try and work out what is causing the Low Insolation issue and advise you accordingly.
